Antique Neoclassical Folding Fan
This beautiful Spanish Neoclassical folding fan is a wonderful distinctive decoration piece. The hand painted leaf paper scene depicts “The Abduction of Persephone” mythological story.

The myth of her abduction represents her function as the personification of vegetation, which shoots forth in spring and withdraws into the earth after harvest; hence, she is also associated with spring as well as the fertility of vegetation.
